Cosmetic Surgery Tourism

Why do so many choose cosmetic surgery tourism over getting their operation performed in the United States? Lower costs, lack of wait times, and the ability to get procedures that are not yet approved by the FDA are just a few of the reasons people are choosing cosmetic surgery tourism. Typically, health insurance policies do not cover cosmetic procedures, so it is common for the entire cost to be paid out-of-pocket by the patient. With most surgeries costing thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars, many people are simply unable to pay for the procedures they want. Cosmetic surgery tourism is a great way to cut the total cost of your procedure and still get excellent care. The cost of a cosmetic surgery in a foreign country is often a fraction of the cost of the same procedure here in the United States. There is also the problem with wait times. Popular procedures and busy clinics often have long waiting lists of patients in line to get their operations. With cosmetic surgery tourism, patients have an entire world of new options available to them so that they don’t have to wait weeks or even months to get the operation they need. Another common reason for people to choose cosmetic surgery tourism is the ability to get procedures performed in a foreign country that are not yet legal in their home country. The bureaucracy of the FDA and U.S. government can mean years before a procedure is properly examined and approved. With cosmetic surgery tourism, you are able to get the procedure you want as soon as it is put into practice.
